never make a purchase without looking
over the newspaper to see where to buy.
One of these is Dr. Bedloe, the well-known

quoted as telling the story that in his
travels, whenever he wauted a collar or a
necktie or a pair of shoes, or, in fact, any
thing, he looked in the paper and hunted
up the fellow who advertised such things
aud always got satisfaction. "I make it a
rule," he says, ''never to deal with a busi
ness man who doesn't advertise. Judging
from past experience, the business man
who doesn't advertise almost invariably
cheated me, ou the theory, I presume,
that I'd come there, anyhow-or that his
reputation was made and he could do what
he pleased. I have always found such a
man narrow-minded, selfish, non enter
prising, penny wise and pound foolish,
even if he didn't cheat me outright."
